FutureTDM Symposium is going to be held at the International Data Science Conference 2017 on 13th of June.
The 1st International Data Science Conference (iDSC 2017) organized by Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (Information Technology and Systems Management) in cooperation with Information Professionals GmbH seeks to establish a key Data Science event, providing a forum for an international exchange on Data Science technologies and applications.
This is a venue where participants can engage actively with a broad community of researchers and industry practitioners. The conference is unique in bringing these two groups together.
The iDSC 2017 is the meeting place for researchers, business managers, and data scientists to discover novel approaches and to share solutions to the challenges of a data-driven world.
The International Data Science Conference gives the participants the opportunity, over the course of two days, to delve into the most current research and up-to-date practice in Data Science and data-driven business. Two parallel tracks, a Research Track and an Industry Track, are open to all participants.
Based on the familiar format of academic conferences, the Research Track offers a series of short presentations from Data Science researchers on their own, current papers. On both conference days, we are planning a morning and an afternoon session presenting the results of innovative research into data mining, machine learning, data management and the entire spectrum of Data Science.
The Industry Track showcases real practitioners of data-driven business and how they use Data Science to help achieve organizational goals. Though not restricted to these topics only, the industry talks will concentrate on our broad focus areas of manufacturing, retail and social good. Users of data technologies can meet with peers and exchange ideas and solutions to the practical challenges of data-driven business.
The Symposium is organized in collaboration with the FutureTDM Consortium. FutureTDM is a European project which over the last two years has been identifying the legal and technical barriers, as well as the skills stakeholders/practitioners lack, that inhibit the uptake of TDM for researchers and innovative businesses. The recommendations and guidelines recognized and proposed to counterbalance these barriers, so as to ensure broader TDM uptake and thus boost Europe’s research and innovation capacities, will be the focus of the Symposium.
Rounding out the program, we are proud to present keynote presentations from leaders in Data Science and data-driven business, both researchers and practitioners. These keynotes will be distributed over both conference days, providing times for all participants to come together and share views on challenges and trends in Data Science.
All participants are invited to sign up for the evening dinner event on the first day, to make new contacts and deepen the existing network in a relaxed atmosphere. And of course the weekend before the conference is the perfect time to explore the fascinating city of Salzburg and the beauty of the surrounding area.
